3D Second World War footage found

Previously unseen 3D footage of the Second World War will be shown on television for the first time.

Film from 1943 showing a German anti-aircraft crew in action will be shown in the programme, called WWII in 3D, next month.

Other footage, including a stereoscopic film found in the archives of the Imperial War Museum (IWM) and a 2D film produced by the Nazis explaining how to use the 3D technology, will feature in the hour-long show on Sky 3D on May 26.

Channel director John Cassy said: “This is truly a remarkable find – seeing the 3D footage made by the Nazis and the accompanying films on how to use them is a compelling insight into how the medium was used during the war.
